A FRESH WAY TO PROTECT THE GOODS: THE BENTLEY SAFE
Stockinger, a German safe manufacturer, released two safes made in conjunction with Bentley. The Continental and Arnage safes are designed in the same way as all Stockinger safes and designed to be impenetrable and feature numerous security mechanisms such as built in alarms and GPS trackers. The Bentley handle itself weighs 3.5 kilograms and has been milled in a 16-hour process from a single block of brass. In four more refining steps, the grip has been sanded, polished, chromed and lacquered to provide the jewel-like finish. Complete with the Bentley “B” at the centre of the handle, the “Stockinger for Bentley” provides the ideal, secure environment for your valuables. The “Continental” has a finish on the drawers and on the safe door which is identical to the Bentley dashboard texture, known as engine turning. Engine turning is a labour-intensive process associated with high quality luxury items and is traditionally found on the racing cockpit interiors of one of Bentley’s earliest cars, the Bentley Blower. For the first time, the engine turning technique has been applied to the interior of a safe.
I wonder when a Bentley Watch will come with the safe or the car????
